, is that inheritable by somebody else, by a classic politician? can hillary clinton still get those voters? will people think that she is outside politics, outside of washington the way that people think of barack obama, which is a wholly new thing. that is sui generis. >> i don't see it like that especially because the man himself is an island unto himself in washington, d.c. >> yes. >> he is not a democratic party boss like tip o'neill. he's not even really connected with the chicago political machine. >> and curiously, people like that. >> he is his own man. that's a great thing unless you are the democrats that want this to be passed along four years from now. >> but is there, in your view, a philosophical way of being that is inheritable, to use rick's word? is this pragmatic problem-solving approach that clinton began and obama has clearly taken through this four years, five years so far, is the next republican victor going to have to be someone who is less ideological than, say, 30 years ago? >> well, i take exception with the suggestion that barack obama has been pragmatic. he passed a lot of t

to the clinton era rates. the top rate under bill clinton was 39.6. the logic of limiting tax increases to people over $400,000 in income is that would affect one of the rates. the trading range is between 35 and 39.6 for the top rate. >> laurie, i want to put something up from your article in the washington post. one part got a lot of our attention. i'll read it. as night fall approached top democratic and republican aids shoved the latest proposals between the two leaders offices about 60 steps apart. now for folks who cover washington, they may understand this is how negotiations take place, this is how work gets done. it seemed asinine that these two offices are this close together, the two men are in washington and they are not sitting down in washington having a negotiation, talking face-to-face, you have paperwork going back and forth. is that just how things get done? is it process or a shame as well? >> it's a little -- they were working at yesterday, yeah, it's how things get done. harry reid wasn't at the capital yesterday. mitch mcconnell was there. the senior staff are trying to figu

president reagan and deal with the spending? >> it depends if he turns into bill clinton or remains barack obama. clinton understood his legacy, was what was important and he would be remembered as somebody who was good on the economy, as a democrat. guess what? he wasn't a typical democrat. he was forced to change. a lot of it had to do with the fact that the congress changed. we have divided government. if the president wants the same old, same old, he will get t. the republicans won't cave. it's equal branchings of government. they control two-thirds and it takes three to tango, the senate, white hussein. >> eric: terrific debate. >> heather: who is leading in the tango, that's what we don't know. congressional leaders are trying to come up with that deal, with less than two days before massive tax hikes and spending cuts kick in and small businesses are already being affected. companies have no idea how much more they are going to owe uncle sam next year. that is affecting how they are doing business right now. we have those details from the new york city newsroom. >> reporter: many sm
hillary clinton finally expected to return to work next week. she spent the last three weeks recovering from a stomach virus and concussion that forced her to miss her date to testify in the benghazi attack that killed four americans in september. lawmakers say until hillary clinton testifies, they'll hold up john kerry has confirmation for secretary of state. >> eric: joining us now is sout carolina congressman and member of the house foreign affairs committee, mr. jeff duncan. good to have you on. first of all, why haven't we heard from hillary clinton? i understand concussions. i know them all too well. but really? three, four weeks now to testify? >> well, she needs to testify and i think she will. i'm optimistic she will. her office verified she was ill. i know the travel schedule, she gets worn down. i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. she needs to come testify. she was the person in charge at the department of state on september 11 when the attack in benghazi happened. and there are questions that need to be answered. >> kelly: there have been some people who criticize

the teleprompter. newt gingrich. he said the republican party right now could not beat hillary clinton in 2016, but we're hearing the beginnings of the efforts to discredit her as a potential candidate. newt gingrich weighing in on hillary clinton. what about that one? >> is this going to come at the end of his second term with a moon colony? you know. newt gingrich coming to hillary clinton's defense, i suppose we shouldn't be surprised. i'm still going to have a head-wrenching moment because wasn't he the guy who had something to do with impeachment? it's nice that he's gone back to his olympian position of musing on the state of politics. he couldn't really predict his own politics in his own primary very well. it's true that people might try and throw rocks at her. i just think stepping out of the washington fray means that she doesn't need to deal with this right now. so in terms of her own position, it's not like she's a nominee. she has to deal with congress. she doesn't even -- she managed to dodge the whole situation on benghazi pretty well for herself. you know, the tougher questions
incompetence what can you get fired over. >> clayton: hillary clinton is out with a concussion and could be senator john kerry going through the approval process x. we'll not have a approval process until we hear from secretary clinton. >> she said publicly she took responsibility . what are you doing to be accountable for the failure. the question is what did she know. did she know he was in danger or putting himself in danger. both roads lead back to her. they are critical to understanding the larger failures. >>> and the u.s. army is heading to africa . parts of the countries where we are seeing extremist growth. they are expanding in libya and mali and nigeria and turkey. this is an effort to make sure they are trainned extremist. it shows that al-qaida is not really defeated but emboldened. >> i ran an operating base. these are the same target and that tells me al-qaida is coming back . it was designed to be a soft power of command and stated to have no combat of power. we had a conference on my think tank know had a conference and people recognized the problem is. you have no comba
the advantage here, the polls indicate, as with bill clinton and this showdown with newt gingrich. the public tends to blame republicans when this happens. especially now at a time when over on the house side, you have so many republicans who are so far right and worry about farther right running against them in primary, that john boehner's plan last week. we don't know how much has changed since last week. but president obama sounded like he was saying something that he had been planning to say a all along. >> take a listen to the president's tone and tell me if you think somebody has changed. >> ordinary folks. they do their jobs. they meet deadlines. they sit down and they discuss things and then things happen. if there are disagreements, they sort through the disagreements. the notion that our elected leadership can't do the same thing is mind boggling to them. >> joy, is this is same kind of negotiator we saw in the first term? >> i'll tell you, richard. one of the things you notice that the president didn't do was offer any new plan. i think he's laying this debacle squarely at the feet
politics the most, former president bill clinton. >> there's not a close second, is there? >> yeah, there might be. >> that campaign -- >> yep. just a few weeks after holding court at the democratic national convention, the former president kicked off his annual clinton global initiative conference in new york city. >> mika and i sat down with the president at the site of the cgi meeting on the same day that both president obama and mitt romney were set to speak there. >> how would you characterize how he's been handling the collective problems that we're seeing percolating across the middle east? >> well, i think that first of all, i think they've done pretty well in a very chaotic situation. the arab spring was always going to have ups and downs or bumps in the road or whatever you want to call it. in libya, the tragic situation of the lost of our ambassador and the other americans, it's worth pointing out a couple of things. first of all, most of the libyan people who were aware of what's going on like the united states, they like the fact that we aggressively supported them and
they are a news show, talking about during the clinton years we had no debt. just the notion of a budget surplus versus a national debt gets lost on many. i don't know that we're going to have a chance until the leadership really tries to be honest with the public. >> we didn't have a surplus if you count the intragovernmental debt of social security and medicare. we had no surplus during those clinton years, you know that. >> that's correct. >> one thing that's clear it won't help our deficit and debt levels going forward if the economy goes into recession so while you're right there's not a solution here that pleases everyone, part of the problem is if this solution includes significant near-term spending cuts, it only makes the long-term problem worse. >> right. so if you don't want to have any contraction at all, then we're going to end up just like some in southern europe. we'll have to wait until after the event occurs, and then you're going to have the press going oh, my god, how did this happen? just like today, i can't believe how many channels are talking about where was the entitlemen
have you a little confused. fox and friends anchor clinton morris is here to answer questions. >> we got questions in from jew viewers. i got an hp lap top i want to put my phone to it but it says it will ee ras my ifshg phone data. >> you can do this. here's my tip. apple is moving away from sinking to a computer using a cord. in your phone or in your ipad go into icloud and start backing up using icloud that. means you don't have to be tethered to any one type of computer. but if you want to sink to your computer go on the new computer launch itunes as your new account type in your name and laufrp that account and when you connect that device you will be able to begin moving content over your songs and all of those things over. but i would say do icloud that way you don't have to be tied to any one die vice. >> sounds a lot simpler. a oo this is another question this comes in from diane. is there a way to connect my broadband air part to nexus tablet? >> air cards are the type you stick into the side of the lap top you use the usb input it is sticking out a little bit by planning.
hillary clinton has been admitted to a new york hospital. doctors have found a blood clot she sustained after the fall. she's being watched closely for the next 48 hours before deciding to take action. >> the president meanwhile making headlines with tough talk about gun control in his second term in the wake of the shootings in newtown, connecticut. you'll remember the president tearing up as he addressed the nation on the day of the shooting. today the president recalled that day. >> this is something that -- you know, that was the worst day of my presidency. it's not something that i want to see repeated. >> the president going on to say he supports banning assault rifles and high capacity clips, better background checks and he hopes it's accomplished in the first year of his second term. >>> meantime some 400 children parents and community members from newtown, connecticut, were at the giants/eagles game in new jersey. what a moment it was. children from newtown greeting both teams as they took the field. then their families and their children stood on the sidelines as the national
amendment. really the religious freedom restoration act. signed by president clinton. it says that persons if they have any religious rights violate and they are can challenge that the government has a high burden to overcome any kind of burden to your free exercise. they use the word persons there but didn't define it if you go to the regular definition of persons in the congressional code. corporations, companies, associations they are all includeded on or abouts a closely held business their religious rights are violated. individuals have no constitutional right to work at these places. you know what you are getting into. if you apply for the job. you are working there now. haven't heard of any individuals complaining. that's a separate situation that could come down the line possibly. though i don't expect it. this is just b. just basic religious freedom not asking for much here thanks for being here. as i said a very important precedent. let me know. does this violate hobby lobby's religious freedom let me know what you think at twitter dave briggs tv. college kid tossed in the slamme
to do in spite of their opposition. >> oh, god. >> this idea came from the clinton -- >> the answer, please. >> did they -- this is a plan that is bipartisan. >> no massive -- >> it's what we do. we do it for all constituents. >> i love that. >> it's how we all were responding to the whole thing. what? >> joe biden. i was happy there weren't commercials on that. if he had time to stop and go over to paul ryan and pee on his leg to show dominance. let's have the moment to acknowledge the magic amount biden had to get away with that. for the most part, he got away with that. imagine if the president was constantly laughing at his opponent, that would not have gone well. not well at all. >> not only white privilege. think about if joe biden behaved that way toward sarah palin, not only would he have been attacked. it's like he suddenly realized, that's totally what he wanted to do during the entire debate in 2008 and now he was okay to do it. >> he was holding it in for four years. >> if i mock paul ryan, is everybody going to be okay with that? yeah. >> i had my favorite moment of the
of the state department apparently they weren't. isn't it time hillary clinton and obama man up and get in front of the congressional microphone? for the four dead americans. where the heck is hill? jimenez is sad. because they try to act like the people were dismissed. lost their job. accountability. the people responsible have blood on their hands of four americans serving their country, begged for resources. outrageous. this is so obvious, they have been exposed and we can't get the answers from the one person who can tell us what transpired. record of that everything happened that day. when she knew. >> eric: she has a concussion. headache. this is ridiculous. the state department, changing facts, changing talking point points. the "new york times" are out at the state department. >> bob: you never take their headline for anything but. this they said they would be ousted from the jobs they held. they were. that didn't say they'd be fired from the state department. >> kimberly: that is a joke. book why? >> kimberly: you think it's sufficient? >> eric: eric boswell, assistant secretar
primary, then senators clinton and obama, they fought about it. they even ended up voting on opposite sides of the issue when it came up for a vote that summer. fisa, and whether or not we already have a government with too much power to spy on us, whether or not there should be more congressional and judicial oversight of that power, whether or not more should be done to protect people's privacy, our country's been having been fights over that tough for years now. but you know what happened today in congress? congress, despite being stalled on pretty much everything, today congress extended fisa, extended the federal government spying powers and did it quickly, like that. the republican-led house passed a bill in the fall with a little help from democrats and the senate passed it today in an overwhelming vote of 73 yeas to 23 nays. president obama is expected to sign it. if you are a civil liberties guy, there was good news and bad news in this debate. the good news is that there were a bunch of privacy amendments, including one from democratic senator ron wyden of oregon. his amendm
the clinton administration. >> we'll show people right now that you like homebuilders and you like retailers, right? put that up. heebner likes retail, home building, what's the third one? automobiles. >> all early-cycle stocks. i like these stocks because the economy is going to be -- has a multi-year period of growth ahead of us and the biggest driver is rising housing prices and increase in residential construction and apartments and single family. we have an increasing shortage of housing in this family and we cut the production of houses way below the household formation and the industry is going to -- the construction industry will grow and that's going to stimulate the economy because its multiplier affects it. the biggest single impediment has been the huge decline in housing prices for the last five years. >> this is the first time since 2006 -- 2012 would be the first time since 2006 that home prices actually rise from a year ago. so one little piece of good news tonight. guys, thanks so much for joining us. ken heebner and brian kelly, you can see him on fast money. >> the markets
, which is let's not forget the fiscal cliff takes us back to the clinton era tax rates. i remember a lot of people on this network saying how great it was back then. we're going back to the clinton era tax rates and we boom then. the reason it didn't pinch us then, now it's deem and then it was great. i think the difference is the economy was improving, incomes were going up, housing prices were going up, people felt better. home prices are going up. that's a good thing, and the income issue is where we need to solve the problem. >> that's right. >> people can handle higher taxes if they make more money. part of that -- i'm going to get preachy here, reverend. the american people have to make a decision about what's important. keeping your neighbors employed. i know cost matters to a lot of people. my parents poet grew up poor. look the at what you buying if it koths made in mechanic and kips your neighbor working at a higher wage at a u.s. facility, think about that decision you're pak maiking. there's no country in the world -- sorry i'm off on a tangent. there's no country in the worl
clinton knew you had to cut capital gains taxes to stimulate capital formation and investment that grew the economy in the '90s, pretty robustly, i think democrats would agree. so there is a whole set of things that have to be done in order to keep this economy out of dipping back into a recession which is why we have missed the real conversation set very well by democrats and republicans on the bipartisan debt commission. for every one dollar in increased revenue, we need four dollars in spending cuts. the president has failed to meet that level. >> you had a bill on the floor of the house, and boehner failed to get that pushed through. what happened there? >> that was -- boehner's leadership, without a doubt, i think, took a huge hit with that one, but that still represents one-tenth of the problem. where's the president's leadership on spending? >> that represents the entire problem. >> really? not according to the bipartisan debt commission. revenues represent the entire problem. >> this is the speaker of the house that can't do his job, that's what that represents, and he can't lea
with me. there was hatred. but i'm not alone in that. you can take the last three presidents, clinton, bush, obama and people haven't just disagreed with them, they've hated them. to me, that's really terrible. that's a cancer that's eating at our politics. >> rick: he also said that even with the last three presidents being worse than he's ever seen, the last two years have been absolutely the worse that there has been an amount of inability to work together and compromise and it's completely stopping our system from making progress. >> clayton: he's been praised by republicans and democrats, but also vilified by both republicans and democrats, thinking he's grand standing and an opportunist. i read his book called "in praise of public service." i love to read all the politicians books when they came out. he believed that no -- >> gretchen: i liked that -- >> clayton: it was a thin back. i could get through in a flight with big type and wide margins. he talked about -- he didn't think we needed any sort of caps or term limits. he believed that we should have it open ended. >> gretche
to the clinton era rate of 39.6% on incomes of $400,000 for individuals, $450,000 for married couples. on the estate tax, the inheritance tax, you see that going from 35% to 40% on estates of $5 million. although the value of that exemption is indexed for inflation. you see on capital gains and dividends the rate going from 15% to 20% on those top earners. now, secondly, you see a round of other changes, you see on the doc fix for medicare. you prevent the decline in medicare payments to medicare providers. you extend unemployment benefits for a year. you see that the payroll tax does not continue. that is going to be a tax increase for average families. those are some of the details that we've got on this bill. but it does not deal with the debt ceiling. it does not put off the sequester indefinitely. the -- it's only for two months we put off the sequester. so we're going to have to see how that is resolved. the alternative minimum tax was also permanently fixed. that's very expensive, because it protects tens of millions of families from having their incomes go up because they woul
rates revert to where they were in the clinton years and remember that only affects half of the taxpayers in the country because only half of the people pay income tax so it's not 97%. it's actually only the top half. and that may not be so -- such a bad consequence from his point of view. it also brings in a significant amount of revenue, which allows him to spend in the way that i think he'd like to do, so it could take a good bit of pressure off of him and, you know, i'm just concerned that he may not feel the same pressure to keep taxes low as the rest of us do. he probably is not a believer that high tax rates would impede the economy at least not to the same extent that i believe that. >> yeah. finally, you know, a lot of the bulls who are encouraging investors to get into the market over the next 12 months say that cap x would come back even with a band-aid, that companies with all their cash and their refinancings have money to spend and that they will spend it in the new year. are you seeing any empirical evidence that suggests that is actually so? >> well, i'm n
. it seems to have been pretty consistent. you had secretary of state clinton saying that assad was a rehe former, someone we could work with. so there's apprehension towards a more aggressive policy, but what matters the most, the facts on the ground, that al-qaeda are again the fighters on the ground in places, and it's difficult to try and develop a relationship with an opposition that includes them. >> clayton: let's talk oil, number three on the list. and an act of sabotage on the oil infrastructure? >> absolutely, everyone focuses on the tension between israel and iran, but the tension between iran and saudi arabia and other arab countries is just as intense and there was a dramatic escalation in the property war between iran and saudi arabia and iranians most people believe was behind cyber attacks on the saudi oil infrastructure. now that's on the target list for iran, bad for the u.s. economy. even if the attack isn't completely successful, what that does for the economy and the markets really hurts all americans. >> clayton: the muslim brotherhood, now in power basically in egypt
